Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  1. Jake Long, OT, Dolphins. Age: 28.
    Signed with Rams

    Jake Long has regressed just a bit over the past couple of years because of nagging injuries, but he's still considered one of the better left tackles in football.

  2. Sebastian Vollmer, OT, Patriots. Age: 29.
    Re-signed with Patriots (4 years)

    Sebastian Vollmer is arguably the top right tackle in football - but not when he has to go up against Cameron Wake.

  3. Andre Smith, OT, Bengals. Age: 26.
    Re-signed with Bengals

    Andre Smith has developed into one of the league's premier right tackles. He was a dominant run-blocker and also excelled in pass protection. There's still some concern that he could get lazy with a big contract, but he deserves the money based on how he's played.

  4. Ryan Clady, OT, Broncos. Age: 26.
    Franchised by Broncos

    Ryan Clady is not a very good run-blocker, but he surrendered just one sack in 2012. Of course, part of that is Peyton Manning releasing the ball quickly, but Clady was still very sound in protection.

  5. Will Beatty, OT, Giants. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Giants (5 years, $38.75 million)

    Will Beatty was heavily penalized in 2012, but otherwise served as an outstanding left tackle for Eli Manning.

  6. Phil Loadholt, OT, Vikings. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with Vikings

    Phil Loadholt was one of the most penalized linemen in the NFL this past season (11 penalties), but he made up for it with his powerful run-blocking and sound pass protection.

  7. Sam Baker, OT, Falcons. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Falcons

    Sam Baker was deemed a bust prior to this season because of years of underachieving, but he actually played well in 2012. The difference was that he was finally over his back problems. Remember though that those things tend to linger and resurface.

  8. Tyson Clabo, OT, Falcons. Age: 31.
    Signed with Dolphins

    Tyson Clabo was Atlanta's top lineman last year, so even though he was due $4.5 million over the next three seasons, his release was a surprise. I do not have him rated highly, however, because he'll be 32 in October. He could begin to regress quite soon.

  9. Branden Albert, OT, Chiefs. Age: 28.
    Franchised by Chiefs

    Branden Albert's a solid left tackle when he's in the lineup - he surrendered just one sack in 11 starts this year - but his issue is that he suffers from chronic back spasms. He can't be counted on to play 16 games.

  10. Eric Winston, OT, Chiefs. Age: 29.
    Eric Winston's release is a strange one. He had a high number of penalties this past season, but played pretty well otherwise. He's a good zone-blocking lineman. Reuniting with the Texans and/or Matt Cassel makes the most sense.

  11. Bryant McKinnie, OT, Ravens. Age: 33.
    Re-signed with Ravens (2 years)

    Bryant McKinnie can still be a quality left tackle if he keeps his weight under control, but that's been a big issue for him. He was awesome during Baltimore's Super Bowl run, but can he maintain his motivation?

  12. Sean Locklear, OT, Giants. Age: 32.
    Sean Locklear was a major upgrade over David Diehl at right tackle. He pass protected well, but didn't open up any running lanes. Unfortunately, he's a 32-year-old coming off knee surgery.

  13. Gosder Cherilus, OT, Lions. Age: 29.
    Signed with Colts

    One of Matt Millen's busts, Gosder Cherilus is actually coming off one of his better seasons, though that still involved approaching double-digit penalties. Cherilus was OK as a blocker.

  14. Barry Richardson, OT, Rams. Age: 27.
    Signed with Titans

    Kansas City fans remember Barry Richardson as an inept right tackle, but he actually improved with the Rams. I still wouldn't be comfortable with him as my starter, but he at least established himself as a top-notch backup and quality spot-starter.

  15. Jermon Bushrod, OT, Saints. Age: 29.
    Signed with Bears

    Jermon Bushrod run blocks well, but he can't pass protect at all. He surrendered four sacks in 2012, but that number would've been much higher if Drew Brees didn't release the ball so quickly.

  16. Jared Gaither, OT, Chargers. Age: 27.
    Jared Gaither is one of the most talented tackles in the NFL. Unfortunately, he's very injury-prone and lazy. A team with a strong locker room and coaching staff should consider signing him to a 1-year deal.

  17. Jammal Brown, OT, Redskins. Age: 32.
    Jammal Brown missed all of 2012 with a hip injury. He's always been injury-prone, and at 32 (in March), he can't be counted on as a starter anymore.

  18. Winston Justice, OT, Colts. Age: 28.
    Winston Justice surprisingly was a decent blocker for the Colts at times this past season, but he was constantly in and out of the lineup because of various injuries.

  19. Demetress Bell, OT, Eagles. Age: 29.
    Demetress Bell struggled in Howard Mudd's system, so maybe he can rebound elsewhere. Still, he's a big injury risk, as he's endured knee problems throughout his career.

As far as insurance premiums go, some cars are more costly to own than others. Those that are expensive to repair, subject to a higher risk of theft, or that have a higher statistical rate of bodily injury Quotes Chimp are going to cost more to insure. Also, if you are presently with a "discount" insurance company, check to make sure they cover that new car you may be thinking of purchasing. Some companies keep their prices lower by refusing to insure expensive or exotic vehicles.

Agree with Joe on this for Seattle if Monroe doesn't come with a too hefty contract. Geoff Schwartz would be a nice free agent upgrade @ Guard possibly. He returned solid from injuries. I like the idea of drafting Morgan Moses or even a mid round draft of Jawaun James. Both played well at RT. Shouldn't need too much development.

Seattle Seahawks could definitely use help on the O-line. Breno Giacomini (OT $3.5M in 2013) and Paul McQuistan (Backup OG $3.00M in 2013) both should be gone after this season. This will leave some cap space for Seattle to "possibly" add Eugene Monroe and add some talent to the O-line. That plus draft either Gabe Jackson or Zach Martin in teh 2nd round would be awesome.

Jax traded monroe because they knew they wouldn't be able to pay him and thought they might as well get something out of him instead of letting him walk in free agency. Kind of like when baltimore traded Bolden, might as well.

Monroe was traded because he'd generate a 3rd round comp pick in the 2015 draft if the Jaguars met the requirements. By trading him, they get the two lesser picks in the 2014 draft without having to restrict themselves in free agency to qualify for the comp pick.

Walt, we traded Eugene Monroe because he was going to walk at the end of the season.

Think about it...I'm sure our GM did his homework after his hire looking into the teams top free agents, Monroe probably being the top priority. We never drafted Joeckle to be a RT, Monroe was going to walk and the Jags knew this. Maybe we could have got more for him...but you'd just grade it as a Millen if we re-signed him("Monroe isn't a competitor....doesn't care about winning...took the money...").

Why is this such a hard thing for you to grasp? Or, is it just part of what you've been spouting about a Jag team for years...never mind the fact we had actual production from street free agents (Marks, one of our best lineman who you graded as a C signing) and draft picks, or that our coach won 4 games with the least talented roster in the NFL by far.

Eric Winston was picked up by the cardinals. He was picked about the same time as John Abraham. He is goin to compete with Bobby Massie for the RT spot. He got a one year deal.

Skins fans know that Winston put up a +15.1 rating this past season, 7th among FA OT, and was cut only because Reid is going OT with the first pick and franchised Albert.

He's a perfect fit for the system if they can clear enough room to sign him.
